The Super Bowl is ahead of us, and it will be an exciting one considering it features the two greatest quarterbacks to ever play the sport. But for now, let’s take one minute to reflect on the conference championship by outlining the MVPs of the game.
Shaq Barrett, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The strength of the Bucs maybe how well built they are as a team in every position, so it is a true wonder that Shaq Barrett is sticking out as a star on a team where every starter is an above-average player already. Barrett had three sacks on Rodgers and likely helped to unravel and confuse Rodgers, which is something that needs to happen when you are facing a quarterback as good as Rodgers.
Travis Kelce, Kansas City Chiefs
Is he the best tight end in the league right now? Best of all time maybe?? Well, the answer to the second question is no but he might be the best tight end in the league at the moment, and he showed it yesterday catching 13 passes for 119 yards and two touchdowns. Kelce is really helping to move this offense, and is one of the single best offensive players in the NFL right now, and definitely the best tight end.
